Ingredients:
• 2 packs (3oz) raspberry Jell-O
• 1 package unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
• 3/4 cup whipping cream
• 15 drops of green food coloring
• 100 flex straws (or enough to fill container)
• Tall container (1 gallon or 1 liter carton of milk)

1. Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
2. Let it cool to lukewarm and add whipping cream and food coloring.
3. Gather straws (flex them out completely) and tightly bind them together with rubber bands near each end. Put them in container flex end down.
4. Pour gelatin mixture into straw bundle and store until firm.
5. To take worms out. You can use a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out -or- run them under warm water and they'll slip right out.

 I see this being a nightmare trying to get the jelly out of the straws in one piece.

I made them once. They aren't that great, and hard to get out of the straws. I recommend non bending straws so they don't get hung.
